Galveston benefits from local medical resources: UTMB and Galveston County Health District. Both UTMB and the Health District have provided care and education to both end of the spectrum (insured and uninsured). There are several local resources for medical, nutritional, and other assistance: St. Vincent's, Our Daily Bread, Gulf Coast Outreach Program, and Salvation Army.
One current health problem Galveston is effected by is infectious disease. A recent epidemic of Ebola has arisen. Although no confirmed cases in Galveston, surrounding cities have reported cases.
Potential problems that we observed were availability of resources to the large population.
Overall, Galveston's population health is fairly good. Since Hurricane Ike, rebuilding the city has been slow, affecting civilians, healthcare, and the community.

"Galveston is fun, there is always something to do...the traffic is horrible in the summer and some areas of town are in bad shape, but overall I think Galveston is a nice place to live."
-Taylor Reynolds, 19
"I am a BOI, lived here all of my life. Galveston was a fun, vibrant, nice place to live before Ike. Things are slowly coming back up, but the city is severely condemned in some areas. Crime rates keep going up!"
When asked about healthcare...
"There are doctors on every corner. The community has plenty of options to choose from. I can't think of anything that needs to be changed"
"In general there are plenty of choices when deciding what provider to see, but with all of these changes in healthcare, I don't know what will happen. They say health care is there for those who need it, but I don't think the message is being clarified and promoted enough."
There is an abundance of sand, sun, salt water grass, tropical flowers...
but also a large amount of cement.
